you heard me ask for a freeze frame of marco rubio's face when he got a challenge from a friend. and on a totally legitimate issue. >> i think it is ridiculous that members of our elect, members of our congress are hiding behind this theory that we haven't defined what an assault weapon is. a bush master weapon is an assault weapon. people in the military say those are the kinds of guns we use when we are fighting wars. >> i think it was interesting that david keeb de n defends it saying it has the ability to fire off a lot of rounds quicklism so it would be in convenient to ban it. can you imagine how long it would take to have to change magazine clips? >> my mission for these segments that we are doing is to get one truth straight in each segment. let's get it straight that what rubio said is wrong. that what the president is proposing would have changed the outcome, yes the crazy kid would have stolen his mother's gun but his mother would have not been able to obtain the gun and we would not have had 26 tragedies inside that school. he would not have been able to kill that ma
rubio's new proposal that would give legal status to millions of immigrants. headlined -- marco rubio, riding to the immigration rescue. his proposal would say illegal immigrants would have to pay a fine, pay back tax do community service, prove they have been here for an extended period of time. understand some english and become assimilated. most of them would get legal stat us and be allowed to stay in the country. congressman paul ryan is weighing in. he wrote this on his facebook page. senator rubio is exactly right on the immediate to fix our broken immigration system. i support the principle he's outlined. modernization of our immigration law, stronger security to curb illegal immigration and respect important the rule of law in addressing the complex challenge of the undocumented population. eagerness to jump onboard is bipartisan. majority leader harry reid describing the prospects for immigration reform in the months ahead. >> it is going to be first thing on our agenda. the -- majority, every senate, lists their top ten items. immigration is the number one item. we are goin
. there are republicans like marco rubio and others who are speaking out about this because the republican party has to demonstrate that it has broad appeal. martha: ric chris wallace tphoeupbs mnow, anchor. i want to talk to you a little bit about the immigration issue. when i hear about marco rubio and see when he's working on now, you can't help but look forward. he had this idea about immigration before the president came out with his plan and mitt romney had ten opportunity to sign onto it. now condoleezzaa rice seems to be saying, we have to learn some lessons from the last election, the g.o.p. does in terms of how they treat this issue. >> absolutely. i mean look at the exit polls, 71% of hispanics, hiss are the fastest growing demographic to america and 71% of them voted for obama. back eight years prior to that in 2004 george w. bush got 44% of hispanics. romney continue even get 30%. that is the difference in a state like florida, and a a bunch much other states around the country. republicans have got to find way to say to hispanics that we are on your side, we welcome you, value you, and

it in 2012 unless they get on the right side of this. i think marco rubio is trying to present that side of it. i think the republicans are going to figure out a way to compromise. i just don't think they can afford to be out on the wing and against it and they're going to have to figure that out. here and on guns. >> explains why marco rubio has been on conservative media all week trying to sell it. >> we did a question just for legal or not legal. there has to be a lot of stuff in place. border security and a lot of other things in place before you get to the legal citizenship question. >> a lot to this poll. like i said, we're spacing it out. we have different questions we're releasing next week on fascinating social movements on some big social issues we've been tracking over the years. thank you both. >> thank you, chuck. >> the gaggle will be here next talking about second inaugurals and the toll the first term has taken on the president. first the final white house soup of the day for the first term, cajun gumbo. fridays you notice, always a fish soup of some sort. we'll be right
the massacre at sandy hook," said republican senator marco rubio, adding, "president obama is targeting the second amendment rights of law-abiding citizens." still, democrat patrick leahy, who chairs the senate judiciary committee, told an audience at georgetown university he intends to hold hearings on the proposals starting in two weeks. >> there are some who say nothing will pass. i disagree with that. what i'm interested in is what we can get. >> reporter: and that might mean putting the assault weapons ban on the back burner in favor of less-controversial measures. california democrat mike thompson leads the party's new gun task force and is a gun owner himself. >> i think we need to look at each piece as to how much good it will do if it passes, and we need to prioritize. and the two areas that i think are most important are universal background checks and the assault magazines. >> reporter: and do you think that those two things stand a fighting chance in this congress? >> oh, yeah. i'm the eternal optimist. >> reporter: the republican house speaker, john boehner, said he will wa
level. the one thing i would watch in this debate is what happens with marco rubio? he tried to take a lead on this issue. you suggested there may be a pathway to citizenship. that is the whole deal. >> so do immigration reform because it will help them in the next election? >> i think there is a huge political calculation. the question is does rubio do it? he has so much -- he has such good credentials with the conservative movement that if he endorses something close to obama, i think by the end of the year you could get a deal on immigration. even that one when you get to the nuts and bolts, politics are tough for a lot of the republicans, particularly in southern districts. >> thanks so much. you'll be on "morning joe" later? >> i will. >> don't use it all up on me. as always, let us know why you're awake or tell us how you'll be spending your martin luther king jr./inauguration day. we'll read the best responses, as always, later in the show. still ahead on "way too early," the baltimore ravens? what do you mean? do we have any ravens fans here? they shocked tom brady and set up
were trying to keep us from voting. >> now, of course marco rubio, a senator from florida took issue with it. do you see any other republicans coming out, condemning these kinds of laws like powell just talked about? >> well, listen, no one has the kind of strength of conviction that general powell does when it comes to critiquing the republican party. part of that is because he's not really in politics the way some of these folk are. but there to be a reckoning in the republican party. they have to deal with everything he has laid out here, because the demographics are the destiny for the party. unless they want to become obsolete, they have to pay attention to the issues colin powell laid out for them on "meet the press" yesterday. >> it doesn't sound like you think the republicans are going to take any of his advice. >> there is no suggestion that they will, ed. the proof will be in the pudding. either they will or they won't. but, again, a lot of folk have been talking about these things for a long time. you hope coming from a republican general as respected as general powell wil

marco rubio. >> by the own admission of the white house, what they have proposed to do would do nothing to have prevented what happened in connecticut or colorado before that or any of these other places where this has occurred. i actually think the president and doesn't have the guts to admit it, is not a believer in the second amendment. >> the white house is also up against the nra, which is raising money. e-mailing support, to upgrade their membership to prepare for, quote, the fight of the century. barack obama, joe biden and their gun ban allies in it congress only want to blame you, vilify you, bully you and strip you of your second amendment freedoms. nra president david keen made these slippery slope argument that has become all too familiar from them. this morning on the "today" show. >> you get into the sort of bidding match. they say we shouldn't have a 30-round magazine or 20-round. the president says let's have a ten. the governor of new york says well, i can top that, we'll have a seven-round magazine. >> but did the nra go too far by invoking president obama's daughters,
on the hill. what we see is a lot of immigration reform and bipartisan, marco rubio introduced his plan endorsed by representative paul ryan in the house. seeing a build between the house and republicans, between the house republican, excuse me, and the senate democrats, on immigration reform. that's a ticket item we could definitely see him pass. >> house republican, senate democrats. here's the deal, amy. when the president started out four years ago, he controlled, democrats had control of both houses. so how much does that change his approach to trying to check off this wish list? it's not that way anymore. >> no, it's not. compromise is the name of the game. he's seeing that republicans want to compromise on certain issues. with gun control, you're hearing certain republicans talk about background checks. a willingness to do that, also some parts of immigration. i don't know if it's going to be some grand, sweeping deal, but, you know, republicans suffering a loss with the hispanic vote want to see that happen. i think if they can find middle ground on these issues he can have a su
something which may be against his nature and try to reach out to republicans, work with maybe marco rubio on immigration, and try to have a real legacy. >> i think your former boss saying, i have political capital to spend and i'm going to spend it. do you see the same for president obama? >> i do. and the interesting thing is, mandates are that which you create as the president. you can create more and do more if you do well. if the economy comes back and you can convince people to come with you. but there's a major issue, iran. iran is an issue the president is going to have to wrestle with in a serious way. >>> we have breaking news now, can you almost hear the celebrating in baltimore. because just moments ago, the ravens beat the patriots and are heading to the super bowl. the 49ers inched out theoppon t theopponents for the trip to the super bowl. jim harbaugh played for a string of nfl teams. he followed in the foot i steps of his father. it's the first time in history this has happened, so the brother on brother matchup is clear to be a heavy story line in a leadup to the game. w
a talk that maybe immigration reform is a place there could be common ground. you heard marco rubio in the senate, paul ripe in the house, and maybe we can have like george w. bush, a republin vision that had legal status and maybe even citizenship for those in this country illegally, ballpark number about 10 million. would a tea party member like you support that? in the past, you've called that amnesty. >> that would be real hard for me, and i defined amnesty, and not many have because they want the broader definition when it's convenient. to grant amnesty is to pardon immigration law breakers and reward them with the objective of their crime. if that's what this bill does, it would fit the definition of amnesty. >> could your speaker survive if he allowed that bill to come to the floor of the house of representatives? >> i think we'd want to look at the language on that. john boehner's tone and his body language and everything i heard him say at the retreat in williamsburg, he and our leadership team was all about how we pull our conference together and work together. i don't thi
. there are some republicans like marco rubio and others who are speaking out about this because the republican party has to demonstrate that it has broad appeal. i think on some of the core values the notion of fiscal responsibility, a strong national defense individual responsibility, yes, federalism, that there are things that the states ought to do that the federal government can't do. i think those are widely popular among the american people. but if you send messages that there are whole segments of the population that are not welcome not only is it bad politics but it's bad policy because without immigration, robust immigration we have the same demographics of japan and europe. so the united states has or the republican party has both a political and a policy problem. >> the president one other thing the president has to do i think -- and your prior segment segment -- you know, he can't keep sticking his finger in the eyes of his opponents. lyndon johnson had a wonderful line, i remember dean rusk at one point said de gaulle is driving us crazy. you can tell de gaulle to go to hell. lynd
, on immigration reform, which is another subject close to your heart. you saw marco rubio, the senator from florida's proposals, are you on board with him? >> he's making progress. i salute him for that. he's got the courage to taken o his own caucus and say, we need comprehensive immigration reform. we need a pathway for citizenship. there's probably a difference of opinion on how long it takes to earn that legalized pathway to citizenship. but it's a great start. i'm looking forward to a partner, senator mccain, lin graham and now marco rubio joining the very important debate and the conversation about how we fix this broken immigration system. >> you're going to have an alliance with lindsey graham, senator mccain and senator rubio, you might get some comprehensive immigration reform. >> i hope so. >>> tasteless or tribute? up next, we have some information on the growing controversy behind the very unlikely pairing of fashion models with the superstorm sandy first responders.

important one is marco rubio, who was not only of hispanic origin, but also younger and can appeal to this whole dreamers movement, and he is right here in washington serving in congress and drafting legislation and working on a bipartisan basis. there is also a large number of democrats and republicans who, while we don't hear about it, are working behind the scenes, like lindsey graham and charles schumer, on putting some kind of legislation out there. certainly bush, he decided to step forward, could play a constructive role. it is not like he is going to let democrats just because he decided to put himself out there on the issue. it would only help in terms of bringing republicans on board. host: we are awaiting the luncheon, which will be wrapping up shortly, and we will hear from the speaker of the house, as well as the president, and at truck schumer, lamar alexander comedy cochairs of the joint congressional committee -- and chuck schumer, lamar alexander, the cochairs of the joint congressional committee on the inauguration. there was a sense of bipartisanship, at least to
in time. host: here is a snapshot of politifact's website. we see senator marco rubio being examined. also, phil gingrey in georgia. saul, from new york, on the independent line. caller: since 2008, when john mccain was running for president, republicans have been claiming that if they raise the capital gains taxes, which obama wanted to do, and dividends taxes 15%, that is going to hurt people and retirement plans. they have been scary people that way. elderly people right -- they have been scaring people that way. elie people right now, on their 401 k, everybody knows that when you take money out of the retirement plan, you pay ordinary income taxes. you don't get the 15% tax break that rich people get when they have been outside the retirement plan. nobody has been saying anything about it. no news media, no politicians, no democrats. i would like to hear what he says about that. guest: sure, saul. we have done a lot of fact checks on claims about taxes, and i would interview to go to our website, politifact.com, and -- ifnder truth-o-meter it is a factual claim, we will check it. where
reform -- when you have barack obama and senator marco rubio essentially in a similar place on immigration reform, i think you're going to get that. >> does the clock run out mid 2014? >> well, i think the record here is about a two-year kind of runway. that sounds about right to me. >> i think it's going to be shorter than that to be honest. let's not forget the fiscal issues and budget issues. he has 30 seconds before he has to sort of dive into those again. the next six months are really going to be full. >> cluck gabriel, sort of the same question to you. the rule of thumb is that the president has about 18 months to get his second term agenda underway and rolling and of course we know that an awful lot of presidential second terms have been marred by either major slips or scandals that impede the attainment of those lofty goals. >> i think 18 months is probably generous, tyler. but, you know, if he essentially does move out quickly on gun control and immigration, you know, immigration is a real wedge issue. that's an issue that democrats really have the potential to rea
based on what senator marco rubio of florida, republican, has put out there. he's put some ideas out there. do you -- do you endorse liz ideas? guest: i have not spoken to senator rubio yet, but we welcome those ideas. there are others in the house that are working on specific proposals and wider ranging proposals, and we want to take a look at this. you know, we are a nation of immigrants. there is not a person to be found who's a u.s. citizen who can't go back a few generations or several generations and find someone in their family who came to the united states to better their lives. my grandfather came from germany. my wife's parents came from ireland. this is a very, very common thing. we are also a nation of laws. so finding a way to address this issue and fix a very broken immigration system will entail looking at a lot of different pieces of this, including enforcement and what you do with the millions of people who are not lawfully in the united states today. so we're willing to look at all those things and see what kind of common ground we can find. we're prepared to see ho
that in the elections. i mean, it was pretty clear. >> yeah, well, in speaking of elections marco rubio senator from florida is going to be a pivotal figure in any discussion about immigration in this country. "the washington post" editorial board writes about senator rubio's efforts at immigration reform saying, quote, the center piece of mr. rubio's plan, a pathway to citizenship with stages, is new for him. as a candidate for the senate in 2010, he denounced amnesty for immigrants without papers. his position now labels not with standing represents a shift. it also requires guts. mr. rubio one of just three hispanics in the senate has made clear he is willing to lead. the question in the coming months is whether his party's main stream in congress, in state capitals, can be coaxed toward moderation. what does senator rubio do about his colleagues over in the house of representatives? >> well, he is a key player and he is willing to work in coalition. i mean, right now in washington that is the key issue. are you willing to get over that one single threshold of working in coalition? do you think t

of respect for marco rubio. we disagree on some things, agree on others. i found him to be very open in his views. i'll seek that. i'll talk to those who are on border states, southern border states. i want to hear what they have to say. i actually joined with president george w. bush, he wanted a comprehensive immigration reform, i told him i strongly support him on that. we don't face this issue in vermont. we don't have canadians wanting to come across the border for a better life or better health care system or whatever in the united states. they are pretty comfortable where they are. but that's not the case everywhere. i'm also very worried -- some of the things i hear and some of the blogs xenophobic attitude, kick those foreigners out, probably by somebody who is one or two generations away from being immigrants themselves. that's not what america is about. that's not what attracted my grandparents and great grandparents to this country. so i am perfectly willing whether it's the gang of six, 12, or something, but in the united states senate we need a gang of 51 to get it through and
